In the am, I boot up the Powerbook which I run at home with an external monitor only. When I'm ready to go to work, I usually put the machine to sleep, shut off the external monitor, bring the PB out of Sleep on the PB screen, then close the lid. I usually try to awaken it about 90 minutes later at the office. Sometimes it wakes up, sometimes it doesn't. I literally have to hold in the power button, I hear it power down, then restart. I've tried the usual methods to awaken it, by striking the space bar, etc, but when it's out, it's out!!!

Any thoughts???

Thanks.

What OS version are you running?

I've had the same problem. I found that the easier way is to open the TiBook, detect monitors, remove the external, detect again, and put to sleep by the Apple Menu, not closing, after its asleep, try it, then close and it should work fine.

10.2.6.

Is there a newer one. I thought I saw there was, but Apple pulled it???

I do exactly that --- up until the final step. I'll try it and see.

Thanks.
